Correct, but quite a few apps give you the option where to store data generated by the app in other locations. If the app is creating a lot of data naturally one would want that stored to the removable media source. I have ran across this in a several different scenarios, the following being the most recent. It could totally be an issue with specific apps not being properly coded and I am sure it is but this may explain my question a bit better.

Auto Call Recorder (works like a dream) gives you the ability to select the location to save your audio files. The lowest level directory being /sdcard as the app has no root permissions making it impossible to reach the emmc folder. If /sdcard/external_sd was linked to /mnt/emmc this would solve the "compatibility" issue.

So I guess my question is has anyone else not had similar issues arise? Would anyone happen to know a work around for this? Have I just under looked and over thought?

So you are talking about programs that can save into the SD card. You can try to create a Symbolic Link yourself in the SD card, or you can just email the developer and have them offer /emmc as well. I've done this in the past with developers and had no issues. Specifically with my Atrix that I used to have. It had a unique SD card location too. ext-sd which wouldn't show up but just emailling them that you want them to offer that location as a default option got it added.

Quick Googling shows that apparently it can be done. Go through this link and see if you can do it yourself, that might be your only option

where do you live. the 4g to 3g "problem" is not a problem. that is what cyanogenmod has done since cm7, i forget the reason. but when data is getting pulled it will show H when data stops it will generally go back to 3g.

the speed can just be a restriction of the place you're living in... it really depends. btw 1.6mb isnt terrible maybe compared to a big city it is but some cant break a mb...

I just started using Friendcaster this week because of the FB SNS problem. It has worked really well for me so far. It is kind of themeable so it looks sort of like black infinitum and it pushes notification which the official FB app has never done for me. So far it seems to be nice to my battery too and it syncs everything including statues to my Addressbook. Apparently they just released some big upgrade for it, I guess I switched to it at the right time. *shrug*

Speaking of this...it seems odd to me that Facebook SNS seems to work fine in AOKP but not CM9. I have a nandroid of AOKP 0403 and FB SNS on there looks like it is working. Maybe it is just a priority issue. Either way Friendcaster actually seems better to me so far than the native FB app anyway.

mms
I cant send mms messages on the lastest 4-5. I am running uclc2 modem and i have tried all the other modems from the main page and none work. I think it is something with my apn settings but i am not sure what to change. Any suggestion?
